2019 Spring Driver Training

March 30, April 6 & 7, 2019

This event is Full! Please check back later when our Summer Driver Training registration is online.

The Race Driver Training Program is organized and operated by the SCCBC's Race
Drivers Committee. Membership on this committee is by invitation. The members of this
committee are a group of the best racers in the club. Most have won championships in
their class and others are those who have done consistently well over the years and
proven themselves capable of excelling in all race conditions and have demonstrated an ability to teach their craft to others.

The three day course includes 1 day of classroom instruction and 2 days of on-track
instruction. Students are assigned an instructor which they may share with one or two
other students. In the classroom session, the students will engage in discussions with
several instructors and study the Race Driver Training Manual. This covers the basics
such as seating position, shifting, racing lines and apexes, and general race procedures.

The on-track instruction starts with a walk of the track and a description of the corners.
Next, comes several exercises including threshold braking, cornering and vision
segments before beginning slow speed dual instruction sessions where the instructor
drives the car around the track at slow speed while pointing out the racing line and apex
in each of the corners. Then it’s the student's turn to drive. By the end of the first day on
track, the students have increased their driving speed considerably. The second day on
the track starts with a short review, then it’s back out on the track. The speed is slowly
increased with each session, until the student is comfortable driving the track at near racing speeds.

The students are observed by the instructors throughout the entire weekend. They are
given feedback on their driving position, and control in the driver’s seat, as well as their chosen line through the corners.

At the end of the course, those who have successfully completed the course and who
intend to go racing may purchase a novice racing license from one of the race licensing
bodies. Three races must be completed under observation as a novice after which time
a driver may upgrade to a senior license, which allows them to compete in club
championship races. For more information on our Race Driver Training Program email:

This course is mainly for people intending to go racing and for those wishing to improve
on their driving skill. Upon completion the course is recognized by ASN CANADA FIA,
CACC, ICSCC, and usually SCCA, for qualification toward a novice race license. For
further information on novice requirements, contact the CACC Novice Director at

Entries are now open, and close two weeks prior to the first date of the course or until the course is full, whichever comes first (on a first come, first serve basis).

Cost: $595.00 (GST & SCCBC Membership included)
